  1. The Ruling of the One who Stops Performing Prayer 1- The one who stops performing As-Salah due to denying its obligation: If he is ignorant about the issue, then he should be informed. Subsequently if he persists on rejecting its obligation, he becomes a disbeliever, as he belies Allah Almighty, His Messenger ﷺ and the consensus of the Muslims.2- The one who stops performing prayer out of laziness: Whosoever stops performing As-Salah intentionally out of laziness, has disbelieved. It is upon the ruler to order him to perform As-Salah and also advise him, for three days, to repent for abandoning it. Subsequently, if he repents and returns to making the As-Salah, he is spared. But if he does not start praying again, he is killed for apostasy. This is in accordance with the Prophet’s ﷺ statement: “The covenant which is between us and them (the disbelievers) is the prayer; so whosoever leaves it has disbelieved.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi.] Also his saying:“Indeed between a man, and shirk and kufr, is abandoning As-Salah.” [ Source: Muslim.] source: islamkingdom
  2. Its basic, essential components which it is composed of; to such an extent that it is not permissible to not perform them in any situation. This means that they are not to be left out intentionally or unintentionally; except when there is a case of incapacity. 1- Intention 2- Standing in obligatory Salat (with ability to do that) 3- Initiating or the first Takbeer 4- Recitation of Al-Fatiha 5- Bowing 6- Rising upright from bowing 7- Prostrating on the seven parts 8- Sitting between the two prostrations 9- Sitting for the final at-Tashahud 10- Reciting the final at-Tashahud 11- Reciting blessings on the Prophet ﷺ during the final at-Tashahud. 12- At-Tasleem (the saying of as-Salaamu’alaykum which marks the end of Salat) 13- Serenity when performing every essential part of Salat. 14- Performing all of the above-mentioned essential parts in sequence source: islamkingdom
  3. 1- A man beautifies himself by wearing his best clothes. Concerning women, they are One should go to the place of Salat without any adornment or finery, and they should not wear perfume. 2- The congregation is to arrive early and occupy the first rows. 3- One should go to the praying ground through one path and return through another, on foot- if possible; on the authority of Ja’bir , who said: “The Prophet ﷺ used to return (after the Salatul-‘Eid) taking a different path (from that by which he went to the prayer).” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] 4- To eat an odd number of dates (3 or 5 dates) before going to pray on the lesser ‘Eid, and not to eat, if it is the greater ‘Eid, until he returns. 5- It is preferable to delay the Salat of ‘Eidul-fitr in order to allow for the distribution of zakaatul-fitr by the worshippers to whom it is due. As for the Salah of ‘Eid Al-Adha, it should, however, be hastened. Source: islamkingdom
  4. 1- Knowing other brothers, loving each other for the sake of Allah and strengthening ties of love; without which, perfect faith would not have been easy to achieve. This is because, there is no path to faith and paradise except by loving for the sake of Allah. 2- Freedom from hypocrisy and the hell fire. This is for someone who meets the initiating Takbeer of every Salat for forty consecutive days. Anas , reported the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying: “Whosoever observes Salat for Allah for forty days in congregation, catching the first Takbeer, has gained two freedoms, both of which are written for him: freedom from hell and freedom from hypocrisy.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] 3- Facilitating the reunion of Muslims and bringing their hearts together in goodness and righteousness. 4- Solidarity among the Muslims and helping one another in issues affecting them. 5- Demonstrating the religious rites and its strength. 6- Unifying the hearts of the Muslims, as in the same row of Salat there is gathered the White, Black, Arabs, non-Arabs, old, young, rich and the poor, side by side, in a single Masjid, behind one imam, at the same time, towards the same direction and with the same intention. 7- Infuriating the enemies of Allah. This is because the Muslims will not cease to be powerful and invulnerable as long as they uphold the observation of congregational Salat in the Masjid. 8- Eradication of misdeeds, and rising in ranks. It was reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who reported that the Messenger of ﷺ said: “Should I direct you to that by which Allah eradicates sins and raises the levels?” They replied: “Yes, Oh Messenger of Allah.” Then the Prophet said: “Performing ablution when it is disliked, taking many steps to the Masjids, and waiting for Salat one after the other. That is striving in the cause of Allah.” [ Source: Muslim.] 9- Observing Salat in congregation is better than observing it alone by twenty-seven degrees. On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar t,, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Congregational Salah is better than that observed alone by twenty-seven degrees.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] - Congregational Prayer (Salat ) at Home. It is not advised for any individual or congregation to observe Salat at home while a Masjid is close to them. However if the Masjid is far away, and they did not hear the call to prayer, then there is no sin on them if they observe it in congregation at home. source: islamkingdom
  5. Salat to seek rain is an emphatic Sunnah. This was performed by the Prophet ﷺ as reported in the hadeeth of Abdullah bn Zaid t,: “The Prophet ﷺ went to the praying ground to seek rain. He faced the Qiblah, turned his cloak inside out, and prayed two raka’at.”[ Agreed upon.] The Time to Observe Salatul-Istisqa Salatul-Istisqa is permissible when there is a drought and sparse rainfall, or the level of water in the streams and well is low, or due to the river drying up etc. It is recommended (to observe the Salat) after the sun rises and has ascended up to the length of a spear; which is about 20 mins after sunrise, which is the time of Salatul-‘Eid (the Salat observed during the two festivals).Where to Observe Salatul Istisqa The Sunnah is for it to be observed on the praying ground and not inside the Masjid, in accordance with the Prophet’s ﷺ manner, except when there is need to do otherwise. source:islamkingdom
  6. 1- For Eating and Drinking Their usage is forbidden, as stated by the Prophet ﷺ: “Do not drink from gold and silver containers and do not eat from plates made from them. Verily they are for them (the unbelievers) on earth and for you (the believers) in the hereafter.” [ agreed upon]And he ﷺ said: “He who drinks from a silver container, indeed (he) causes hell-fire to boil in his belly.” [ agreed upon] 2- For Other than Eating and Drinking It is permissible to use gold and silver for things other than eating and drinking, for example to perform ablution. This is based on the specificity of the previously mentioned hadeeth to eating and drinking. Also we see evidence for this from the hadeeth of Ummu Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her). She possessed a small container resembling a bell made from silver that contained grains of hair belonging to the Prophet ﷺ.[ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.]Usage of Containers Patched with Silver It is permissible to use containers patched with a small amount of silver. The patching must be for the purpose of repair only and not beautification, as is shown in the hadith in which the Prophetﷺ mended the cracked portion of a pitcher with a chain made of silver.[ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.] SOURCE:islamkingdom taharah
  7. 1- It should be prayed as a two-raka’at Salat with neither the Aḍhan nor Iqama. Recitations in both raka’ats are said aloud. 2- The person observing this Ṣalāt says the takbeer seven times in the first rak’ah after the initiating takbeer. In the second rak’ah, he says five takbeers apart from the one he says while standing up from the prostration.3- He raises his hands with each takbeer, praises Allah and extols Him. He also seeks blessings upon the Prophet ﷺ between each takbeer.4- After the Ṣalāt, the imam delivers a single sermon in which he seeks a great deal of forgiveness and recites Al-Qur’an over and over. Thereafter he supplicates, saying many of the authentic supplications of the Prophet ﷺ, with insistence, showing humility, helplessness and demonstrating how powerless he is in front of Allah (the Most High), raising his hands up even higher (than he does in ordinary supplications).5- The imam faces the Qiblah, turns his cloak inside out, placing what is on the right on the left, and that of the left on the right, while he continues to supplicate to Allah. source:islamkingdom
  8. 1- With Regards to the Congregation The adhan and the iqamah are fardh al-kifiyah[ The definition of the responsibility of fardh al-kifayah in Islam is: the obligation which when fulfilled by one part of the Muslim community prevents the sin of failing to do so from falling on the rest of the Muslim community.] (a collective responsibility) for the Muslimeen, but only for the five compulsory prayers.This is the case when they are at home or on a journey, because both of them are open symbols of Islam. Therefore, it is prohibited to forsake or ignore them. The Prophet ﷺ said: “And when Ṣalāh approaches, let someone among you make the call to prayer for you, then let the oldest among you lead (the prayer).” [ Agreed upon.]2- With Regards to the Solitary Individual It is a Sunnah, as Uqbah ibn Aamir t, said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah ﷺ saying: “Your Lord is amazed at a goat shepherd at the peak of a mountain[ The midst of mountain peaks] who calls the adhan and prays. Allah says, ‘Look at this servant of mine, he proclaims the call to prayer, announces the commencement of prayer and then prays, fearing Me. I have forgiven him all of his sins.” [ Source: An-Nasa’i.]SOURCE:Islamkingdom
